    One of the coolest games I've ever played. Nor do I say MS-DOS, but consoles in general. The space exposure system is very good, the designs are captivating, the negotiation system, the facial expressions of the characters, the controls that fade when the ship takes some damage and the control of the ship itself. All done with a work that surprises me to this day. Note 10. This one and Project Nomad are my favorites in space exploration.
